  • asombra: Funny. That looks like a Hillary outfit.

  • asombra: Btw, those so inclined should have their Fidel obituaries ready to go. Nosferatu should croak soon.

  • asombra: You know what happens to the few foreign journalists who don’t follow the Castro script? The same that will most likely...

  • asombra: “Che” was ultimately a perverse putz absurdly full of himself. It’s just that, if you give a putz enough gas,...

  • asombra: The Congressional Black Caucus and other black American civil rights “champions” will be sure to keep this in mind....

When Every Second Counts

A fascinating look at just a second from every day out of a year that we would typically throw down the memory hole in the whole contest of just one day, let alone 365... From The Blaze: Three hundred sixty-five seconds. It’s amazing how just one second a year adds up and can give a […]

That Which Makes Us “Special” Makes Us “Exceptional”

I just had to post this. Please meet Miss Rion Paige, an F-5 tornado... WOW! Miss Paige's singing talent aside, can you imagine if today's non-challenged kids had even 1/2 the spirit, attitude and determination this young woman has?!? Make no excuses. Never allow anyone else to make excuses on your behalf. Just find who […]

El Rookie

A great piece on Marlins All Star pitcher Jose Fernandez at Grantland: He first saw it about five years ago, while he was floating on a boat about 10 miles from shore — lights stacked on top of lights, all spread upward and outward, wrapping around a piece of land that stretched north and west […]

Love, Loyalty, and Devotion

Amid the rising flood of scandal and controversy I found this bright beacon... From Newsmax: Today, June 5, Nancy Reagan placed Pope John Paul II Roses at the gravesite of her husband, President Ronald Reagan, on the ninth anniversary of his passing. The flowers were picked from the garden of a dear friend and chosen […]

Andrew Breitbart – March 1, 2013 …

... Still Here War.

The Pure Brilliance of Dr. Benjamin Carson – UPDATED

A good friend suggested I look into the CSPAN video of the 2013 National Prayer Breakfast from this morning, and fast forward to the address from Dr. Benjamin Carson, director of Pediatric Neurosurgery at The Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions. In under a half hour this learned and accomplished man said more and made more solid […]

Some Disney animation magic to wash away the crap we deal with

Man cannot live on politics alone... Beautiful.

The Gentle, Loving “Nana”

I just had to share this incredible video. This little Peter Pan has his very own patient, attentive, and devoted "Nana"... You can see an extended version of this interaction (without the music bed) between the little boy and the Golden Retriever here. Recently there was the story of a lost 10 year old Down […]

The Beloved Christmas Carol Written During the Cuban Missile Crisis

I am not sure if anyone at Babalu has covered this before, but I had no idea. I admit to being one of those who simply took for granted one of my all time favorite Christmas carols had been written a century or more ago in some chilly New England loft or a dusty European […]

“Nobody is Being Forced to Bow Down and Worship Anybody”

For several years now Bill O'Reilly has documented the war on Christmas in this country. It seems like every Christmas season the secular atheists can't help but insist on making everyone as miserable, sour, and antisocial as they are. They are offended by any outward expressions of Christmas, whether religious or not. Friday night O'Reilly […]

Election day inspirationals

Two excellent essay, one on The American Spectator and the other on Human Events: "Au Revoir, Mr. President" by R. Emmett Tyrrell, Jr [...] Obama has come across as an amazingly close approximation of Jimmy Carter, complete with a slow-growth economy and a foreign policy disaster, though one of Obama's empty boasts was he understood […]

The Choice, revisited: our Republic on the precipice

“At what point shall we expect the approach of danger? By what means shall we fortify against it? -- Shall we expect some transatlantic military giant, to step the Ocean, and crush us at a blow? Never! -- All the armies of Europe, Asia and Africa combined, with all the treasure of the earth (our […]

Viva Cristo Rey!

As a Jew, these are not my words, but the battle cry of the Cristeros, as well as the last vows of martyrs in the film, For Greater Glory: The True Story of Cristiada, a film about faith, freedom, conviction, and refusal to abandon those principles. This film is populated by heroes of the kind […]

The TEA Party is Alive and Well, and So are The American People

I grabbed this from a FaceBook follow: Tea Party Fort Lauderdale 8-4-12 (I'm taking the picture so all you see of me is my SO FAR THE CHANGE SUCKS sign) . GREAT PATRIOTS...temps in the 90's deters no one! — at Oakland Park Blvd / Federal Hywy . Love the "Stop the circus. Fire the […]

Cuban refugee has a sacred mission

My dear friend Fernando Marquet: Humanitarian, great patriot, freedom fighter, wonderful family man and friend,  has a great write up in a local newspaper, The Downey Patriot.  People such as Fernando are those who make our world a better place. I am very proud and honored to have worked with him on a number of his […]
